If you found your dream company (or any company you’re excited to work for), start by giving value.
It could just be a short blog post, “Why I’m Thankful for What Company Z is Doing.” (It is almost Thanksgiving after all….why not whip this up today or tomorrow?).
Then, email it to someone like the CEO. That’s it. Brownie points secured.
That sets you up to send a value prop later.

How to start working 38 hours a week
Burnout is real. How can you focus not on hours worked, but value created? How can you economize your daily work? Often, less is more.
- Make a daily plan: Before diving into work each day, make a realistic list of what you plan to accomplish that day (or make it for the next day before logging off)
Learn to Code (you can do it)
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you are motivated, and you dive deep.
For example, it only takes 30 hours of focused concentration to learn to read (but the standardized school system makes it take way longer).
Well, same with career launch! You don’t need to spend years and years going to get a degree.
